2021 speaker series (& MTB Heritage Week)
Our 2021 Virtual Speaker Series will be kicking off at 7pm on Wednesday, February 17 with Whistler Pride: A Look Back with Dean Nelson. The Whistler Pride & Ski Festival has taken place in Whistler for almost 30 years (under a couple different names) and we’re taking a look back at how it started and how it has grown with one of its long-time organizers Dean Nelson.
You can attend our 2021 Speaker Series events on Zoom for free by registering here or contacting us at the Whistler Museum. Events feature interviews with our speakers followed by a live (virtual) Q&A.
In March, we are pleased to be looking at the history of journalism and publication in Whistler with Paul Burrows, Charlie Doyle, Bob Barnett and Clare Ogilvie. Then, in April, freestyle skiing legends Stephanie Sloan and Mike Douglas will be sharing more about the sport that once included competitive ski ballet.
May we’ll be back with the 6th annual (or is it 5th? We’re not entirely sure how to count annual events after 2020) Mountain Bike Heritage Week. We’ll be sharing more details about all upcoming events soon, so be sure to stay tuned.
